Today I've three textbooks on Offshore Geotechnical Engineering and stack of two dozen papers on offshore wind turbine foundations sitting on my desk, waiting to be read. I'm starting to take a crack at them, working through soil mechanics problems from undergraduate exams along the way. This evening I'm really looking forward to a talk from Dr. Linda Hulin in the Archaeology School about her and Dr. Damian Robinson's work in Maritime Archaeology. I'm especially curious to hear about the technology they use in their field expeditions. After the talk is the Oxford Marshall scholars are getting together. Looking forward to catching up with them, and hoping to get some ideas that will help pinpoint my thesis.
